MEMORIAL PAGE


The information and images on this page were supplied by Kristina Miles whose Great Uncle was a 49 Sqn Rear  Gunner stationed at Fiskerton in late 1943 to early 1944.

He was: Sergent Douglas Demus Russel Dalaway, ( Nibs) born  1923 in Sedlescombe. He and his crew flying in Lancaster S for Sugar, serial number JB727 failed to return from a raid on Berlin on 3/1/44. This Lancaster is strongly believed to have suffered a mid-air collision with another 49 Sqn Lancaster, the details of which can be found on this website on Ted Cachart's page. There were no survivers from the crew of S for Sugar.
